NET © Notes

tc Heb “and the leaders said to them.” The LXX omits the words “and the leaders said to them.”

tn The vav (ו) consecutive construction in the Hebrew text suggests that the narrative resumes at this point. The LXX reads here, “and they will be,” understanding what follows to be a continuation of the leaders’ words rather than a comment by the narrator.

tn Heb “as the leaders said to them.”
